Sixties psychedelic nostalgia, mid-'80s style: Coming out of nowhere with a spot-on cover of Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky," this goofily-dressed band (white pancake make-up, paisley up the wazoo, quasi-goth leanings) had little else to deliver when required to come up with a follow-up album — seems like the Greenbaum song stole all the melody. Lead singer Clive "The Doctor" Jackson sounds like he's auditioning for the Cult, while backup singers Wendi and Colette are patently more interesting — perhaps they should have taken the spotlight instead. Elsewhere, the Medics strike all the right poses after several hundred listens to Nuggets, but there just aren't the songs to hold it all together. Craig Leon (the Fall, Primitives) produces in usual sharp fashion, while XTC's Andy Partridge chips in one track "Miracle of the Age," yet to no avail, really. In fact, their second best song, the album title track, turned up instead on the B-side of "Spirit in the Sky." Worth hunting out.
